Let's gather together in the 11th floor art space at LightHouse San Francisco at 1155 Market to explore a different art process, style or media each moth while connecting with fellow creatives. These are exploratory, process-oriented classes that invite you to work at whatever level you are, be it first timer to expert.

During the month of February, let's create and paint tactile creations.  Using found materials such as rope, cardboard and foam paired with bold and metallic paints, we will create works that are both haptically and visually engaging.  As this will require multiple weeks to complete, please be prepared to attend regularly.
